Hi,
is it possible to have the original dimscreen support multi monitors ?
Cause current version, will only affect principal.

Thanks,

Please try the DimScreen mod I made awhile back.  Let me know if it works for you.  Thanks.

Thanks a lot, works really well.
I prefered the % settings accessible like the other version though: this version seems only allow to set at start or with hotkeys.

Cordially,

I was afraid of that.  Here's a version with just the multimonitor change:

Make sure you delete your DimScreen.ini before running this...

Also, just to know: how does this software works exactly ? It doesn't change real screen brightness right ?

Is there any risk of screen calibration modification ? Or damage ?

Anyway, it does the job better than anything that adjust real screen brightness setting.

Thanks a lot.   cheesy

Also, just to know: how does this software works exactly ? It doesn't change real screen brightness right ?

All it does is create a black GUI window the size of your entire desktop.  The GUI is set to always on top, disabled, and click-through.  Then, it makes that black GUI transparent to the level you choose.  This is what creates the "dimming" effect.  You're actually clicking through a transparent window.  Make sense?

It doesn't change or mess with your monitor calibration at all.
